All In For Students Award Recipient 2012: The award is presented to site coordinators who demonstrate an unwavering commitment to students. With acts of love and transformation, these Heroes are the best at what they do.
The commitment to meeting students’ needs is Priority No. 1 for Stephanie Armendariz, Communities In Schools of South Central Texas site coordinator. She will give students a ride home after school so they can stay for tutoring, provide breakfast to children when they come to school hungry so they can stay focused in class, and take sick children home from school when their parents don’t have transportation. Stephanie does anything and everything to help children so they can focus on learning while they’re at school. She also provides parents the support they need to help their children be successful.
“Stephanie comes to Schertz Elementary each day with the sole intent of placing joy in the hearts of others – children and adults alike,” said Tina Trcka, principal, Schertz Elementary School. “She is sincere, passionate and generous, and has a true servant’s heart.”
